Frugal Friday!

This week I thought I would mention a wonderful quick recipe that my family really enjoys!

One day about a year ago I was watching The Food Net Work and I saw Paula Deen making this really easy recipe.

Now I am always looking for some side dishes to add to our dinners to fill up all of our families hungry tummies! Bread is one item that I like to make. It fills them up and tastes great.
The problem is that I do not always have time to make bread that requires rising time.

This recipe is for Sour Cream Muffins. These really work out great and are quick and easy to make! Even your children could make these with a little help.
The Frugal part of my recipe is the flour. This recipe requires using Self Rising Flour.
I bought this the first time I made this recipe ,but I could not believe how much more the self rising flour cost compared to regular white flour.

So to the internet I went to find a recipe to make my own self rising flour and here it is.

Self Rising Flour:
1 cup of white flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt

So for every cup of flour you use you just add these amounts of the other items.

This works out great and you could even make some up for later use.

These muffins are so good you just whip them up before supper and they come out of the oven smelling great!

You have to try them ! You just won't believe how good they are!
Here is the recipe just check them out here at The Food net work.

I hope that you give them a try and let us know what you think of them!

Oh I just realized that I forgot take a an after picture of them I am sorry!

These sound really good. I can't wait to try them. I haven't noticed self rising flour costing more here. Then again I haven't bought any in awhile as I bought it in 25 lb bags.
